Community Hospital opens exercise circuit

Community Hospital in Grand Junction has opened a physical activity circuit.

The circuit is located on the south side of the hospital campus at 2351 G Road and offers nine stations, including those for back extensions, sit-ups and leg presses. The full circuit takes about 20 minutes to complete.

“We want to promote health and fitness to our employees, encourage physical activity and support wellness within our organization,” said Lana Birch, wellness coordinator for Community Hospital. “We value employee health and strive to be the leader in worksite health and wellness for our community.”

The project began in early 2016 and was made possible through an $8,500 donation from the Grand Junction Lion’s Club and financial support from the Community Hospital medical staff totaling more than $35,000. Funds were used to purchase equipment and complete the infrastructure of the exercise path. Community Hospital facilities staff helped complete the project in April.
